A perfect resume intercedes for you while applying for a job. It speaks to the hiring managers about your achievements, career, academics, who and what you are.

How to write a resume?

  • Provide a cover letter thanking the company for reaching out to you or considering your job application. It gives a good impression of you.

  • Your employers do not spend more than a minute to read your resume. They just skim through it and frame the initial questions for your interview. The skills required for enrolling in their company is what they look for in a resume. So it is mandatory for any candidate to have a thorough understanding of the company before they frame a resume.

The  Purpose of Resume

  • You have the absolute right to write your resume. So structure it favoring yourselves. Go through the job description to achieve this. Think of how you can contribute to the success of the company. A brilliantly structured answer can impress your employers. But make sure you do not include any fake achievements or details. It lands you in trouble and will forever remain a black spot in your profile.

  • Rather than boasting about your skills, try to prove its credibility. This is what the employers need because nobody knows what you have written in your resume is true or not.

  • Focus on your achievements and experience. Those who have zero experience in the required field can mention the internships you have done before. This is why students are encouraged and advised to go for internships along with their studies. Internships can help you achieve a lot.

  • A short and crisp resume revealing your entire self attracts the employers rather than a lengthy one. Understand that the mile-long resume cannot fix your future.

  • Make mention of why you are applying for a particular post. This is a very important question that could be asked for the interview as well.
